I’ve been watching the popularity of the Align Tank soar with just a hint of jealousy and wistfulness. You may have noted the slight ‘tone’ to my comments on the last upload about all the new crop tops. I fully believed that this trend excluded me in some way, which is kind of bananas. Nobody ever said that!
I’m curvy, and have that pre menopausal non flat stomach, so I thought ‘crop tops = not for you!’. I kept wondering if I could pull it off though.
Every single fit pic I’ve see of the Align Tank online, I’ve loved, at every body shape and every age. It’s not just the crop length, I love the overall silhouette of the top with looser fitting mid to high rise shorts, and high rise leggings. It just looks fresh and feminine.
I’ve been so taken by the Align Tank that every time I go to a lululemon store, I look for them, hold them up, consider trying one on and then talk myself out of it. Yesterday I went a step further and decided to try one on. It was instant love! I was pleased that despite having a really long torso it didn’t really expose that much midriff at all.
What convinced me to get over myself and finally just try it on was Ms. S who often leaves comments offering her fit reviews for hourglass/larger bust proportions. She raved about it to me and said I should try it on. She was right! This tank is sexy and a little ‘booby’ but so flattering. I’m going to go ahead and declare it. This is a very wearable crop top for those of us in the pre-menopausal/menopausal category!
The is the size 10 I have on in the picture which is my typical size in Lululemon tank tops. It’s so comfortable!
Because I have a large rib cage the tank hugs around my middle (without squeezing) vs. having the looser fit I’ve seen in some fit reviews. I like the way this tank looks both TTS and sized up in every fit pic I’ve seen.
This tank is buttery soft and thick! I don’t know how such a buttery soft and stretchy material can give such great cleavage, but it does. I wouldn’t call this supportive for vigorous workouts, but it definitely gives lift.
I ended up ordering the Align Tank in black as well in both a size 10, and a size 12 to compare. I know a lot of reviewers online suggest sizing up but that has a lot to do with bust size. I’m a 34DD, but I don’t have a lot of cleavage so I don’t spill out at my regular size.
Have you tried the Align Tank yet?
Heads up! Tomorrow, July 9, Lululemon is having a huge online warehouse sale. Be ready for it! The rumour is it will be around 2pm. I’m not sure how accurate that time is so I will be watching like a hawk and I will alert you guys as soon as it’s up.
